He has been a pirate, a hit man, a bulletproof monk and, most recently, Dragonball Evolution's Master Roshi. But is Chow Yun-fat (pictured) going to be Confucius? That's what film journal Variety is saying.

A story suggests the Hong Kong star will portray the renowned Chinese philosopher in a biography. According to its sources, the casting was confirmed by a spokesman from Beijing's Dadi Film Group, which is financing the flick along with the state-owned studio China Film Group.

Director Hu Mei will reportedly be at the helm, with shooting to begin this month in Hebei. We don't want to pre-judge, but it could be either really boring or just numbingly propagandistic.
